I learn about great audiobook titles from you guys! I expect I get most of my recommendations from other book bloggers, whether they reviewed the audiobook itself or they reviewed a book and it sounded good. I usually look up audiobooks versions of books I want to read to see if I like the narrator and look up reviews of them to see if they are good. I use the Book Blogger Search Engine some. I use AudioFile some. Occasionally I’ll ask on Twitter for recommendations.
I get my audiobooks mainly through Audible. I have the one credit a month plan, and I also take advantage of sales (which I will do today! Hurray for paydays!). I also get audiobooks from my library, who participate with OverDrive. Once I figured out that any audiobook I got on my iPod from the library didn’t expire if I didn’t delete it, it was on. I have a ton of books on my iPod that I really need to listen to. I have occasionally downloaded one from Barnes & Noble, when I have a coupon or something. I just always forget about it. And of course, in the summer, I get two a week from AudioFile’s Sync. This week’s titles are THE AMULET OF SAMARKAND and TALES FROM THE ARABIAN NIGHTS if you are curious. They are free and they will have more every week of the summer. Check it out here…. I’m really looking forward to next week’s selection; The Woman in White read by Ian Holm!!!
So, there you have it. All my secrets, laid bare. How about you? Where do you get your reviews? Your audiobooks? Share the scoop!
